NZ least corrupt

has effectively ranked as the least corrupt country on Earth. That’s obviously a good thing. But to some degree they can be self fulfilling prophecies as much of the data is based on perceptions of .

So to be absolutely precise NZ was perceived as having the lowest level of corruption in the public sector of the 180 countries surveyed

The top five countries are:

  1. New Zealand 9.4
  2. Denmark 9.3
  3. Singapore 9.2
  4. Sweden 9.2
  5. Switzerland 9.2

The bottom five are:

  1. Somalia 1.1
  2. Afghanistan 1.3
  3. Myanmar 1.4
  4. Sudan 15
  5. Iraq 1.5

Countries I have been in recently:

  1. USA 7.5
  2. Turkey 4.4
  3. Kuwait 4.1
  4. Thailand 3.4
  5. Egypt 2.8

As I said above, this doesn’t mean we are corruption free. Taito Philip Field is an example of how that is not true. It is more than any corruption is not systemic.
